TAXES AND FISH! OR FISHY TAXES!

 DUE TO CUTBACKS- WE NOW HAVE A "FIRE" DETECTOR, RATHER THAN A SMOKE DETECTOR!



WE HAVE NEVER WAITED THIS LONG TO FILE TAXES BEFORE, BUT THERE WERE EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES THIS YEAR.

MONEY!

MY NEW DISABILITY, AND 1,000 OF OTHER LITTLE THINGS! LIKE DEDUCTIONS!

I FIGURED UP THE % OF TAXES THAT ARE TAKEN OUT OF MY NEW DISABILITY CHECK. 

AND REMEMBER- I RETURNED TO WORK, ONLY TO BE SENT HOME: 

I WAS TOLD I COULDN'T WORK!  I TRIED TO RETURN TO WORK AND THEY WOULDN'T LET ME. I'M SURE FROM THEIR POINT OF VIEW I AM A LIABILITY, AND AN EXPENSE. SO NOW I HAVE TO PAY FOR MY OWN HEALTH INSURANCE (QUITE A BIT PER MONTH!!), TOOK A 30 % PAY CUT; PLUS THE TAXES TAKEN OUT OF MY CHECK.......

THE TOTAL TAXES COMES TO :

30%, STRAIGHT TO THE GOVERNMENT!

AND I PAID FOR THE DISABILITY POLICY ALL ALONG! THIS IS NOT SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY INCOME. I STILL HAVE TO APPLY FOR THAT! SO BY BECOMING ILL, WHICH I REALLY HAD NO CONTROL OVER- I HAVE EFFECTIVELY TAKEN A  60% PAY CUT!

I TRULY AM NOT COMPLAINING,  

BECAUSE I AM ALIVE. 

I AM AT HOME WITH MY WIFE....EVERY DAY, 24-7, WHICH HAS BEEN AN ADJUSTMENT:  LOL!

WHICH WAS ANOTHER RANT--BUT I DO LOVE MY WIFE DEARLY!

BUT NOW I LIKE IT! IT'S JUST EARLY RETIREMENT!

WE WERE PREPARING FOR THIS DAY- SO THANKFULLY AND MIRACULOUSLY, WE ACTUALLY HAVE MORE MONEY THAN WE DID BEFORE. IT WAS SIMPLY A CHOICE NOT TO LIVE IN DEBT!! & TO PAY, AS WE PLAY!

AND BECAUSE I'M NOT WORKING:

TOMORROW I'M GOING BACK 

FISHIING!

(IT HELPS THE GROCERY BILL TO CATCH WHAT YOU EAT!  COME ON GARDEN!!!!!!!)

I COUNT MY BLESSINGS EVERY DAY, AND THEY ARE MANY! I LIVE IN WHAT I THINK IS THE GREATEST COUNTRY ON EARTH. SO IF I HAVE TO PAY A LITTLE FOR THAT--OK!

IT DOES SEEM LIKE IT SHOULD INCLUDE HEALTHCARE THOUGH!

 I'M NOT A PROPONENT OF NATIONWIDE HEALTH CARE. I'VE BEEN IN DA BIDNESS FOR 30 YEARS, AND OLD HABITS DIE HARD. I SEE BOTH SIDES, AND AS ALWAYS, THE ANSWER LIES SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE.

I KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO OUR DOCTORS, WHO ARE DWINDLING ALREADY (GOING INTO OTHER FIELDS OR STAYING HOME AS MOMS!),  BECAUSE OF BUREAUCRACY AND MALPRACTICE. 

INITIALLY THE OVERALL QUALITY OF OUR HEALTH CARE DELIVERY SYSTEM, WILL DROP DRAMATICALLY, AND THEN SLOWLY ADJUST AND RECOVER. GENERATIONS FROM NOW, THE YOUNUNS' WILL NEVER KNOW--"THE WAY IT USED TO BE!"!

I KNOW IT WORKS ELSEWHERE, BUT I'M NOT ELSEWHERE. 
SPOILED...PROBABLY;  BUT I LIVE HERE!

I GUESS THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS DESERVE FREE HEATH CARE, AND FOOD STAMPS IMMEDIATELY UPON ARRIVAL IN THE U.S. 

I DON'T MIND MOST OF MY 30% GOING TO SUBSIDIZE THAT!

BULLSH##  !!!!!!!!!

FISHING SHOULD FIX MY RANT!!!!!!  GOING TO TAKE TAXES NOW!

This may appear to be too personal, or TMI for some.. We kinda discussed what should and shouldn't be put out for the world to read on another Blog. However, this is my Blog, my Journal. My Opinion. Decide for yourself if it's over the top, or too much. The great thing about Blogging, is the Back, or X Buttons in your Browser!!

The next post may have you laughing so hard you pee your pants, or scratching your head and saying, "Daaaang"! That's what's so cool about this medium!
